For the past 15 months, the people of Delhi have witnessed a war of words between the AAP govt and LG Najeeb Jung. The crux of the fight between the two sides is the special status given to Delhi by the Constitution. But that tussle for supremacy seems to be at an end, for now.
The Delhi High Court has dismissed a petition filed by the Kejriwal govt challenging the powers of Delhi LG in appointing bureaucrats in the capital. The court in its order described the Lieutenant Governor as the administrator of Delhi. While Jung welcomed the verdict, AAP quickly vowed to contest it by moving the Supreme Court. The BJP too joined the debate attacking the CM claiming Kejriwal has run out of excuses for his failures now.
